This new poll is another one suggested by our forum mod, StarlightDreams~ Simple enough to choose what eating utensil you feel answers the question (which is not a well phrased question... but at least it's easy to understand)

You can discuss this poll on our forums here:

Question: If you had to lose one of your 5 traditional sense, which would you give up?
Choices:
Sight - votes: 800 (5.3%)

There were 15130 total votes.
The poll ended: May 15th 2010

Majority chooses smell! I can definitely see the truth as to why, but I would still love to physically hear if from one of you, although I doubt any of you reading this has ever touched what I have touched or tasted my cooking (which sucks, so that's a good thing)

PS: Totally forgot to make a post last week for all those mothers out there, so here's a shout out to my own mom who will probably never visit this site in her lifetime

Why smell ? Because it's the most easy to live without i think (except for some works). Sight, Hearing and Touch are the most important in daily life i think, without them many things can happen badly. And since i really like eating (hehe) i prefer smell to taste (but yeah it can be somewhat a problem like not knowing some food smell bad and when you eat them...)

"Lack of"? How rude! Hands are the best eating utensils in the world! You don't just get to eat the food, you get to FEEL it at the same time! Can your precious forks do that?

It's a bit difficult choosing between a loss of taste or smell since they work hand-in-hand, but I chose to lose taste. A loss of one would alter the other. The sensation of taste depends a lot on the aromas within the mouth through smell leading to flavor. And it would also be bad if I couldn't smell a gas leak or smoke.

Rofl! Seconded. xDD

Plus, you don't have to go (gasp! actually walk/move?!) anywhere to fetch your hands. Like you have to take forks and knives and stuff out of... wherever you keep them. Beat that! xD

Going with the obvious answer since I'm Asian XDD. I actually feel super uncomfortable when I have to eat my noodles with a fork. It feels so wrong.

Crazy dudes. It's all about the Knife. You can eat almost anything with a knife if you know what you're doing(Cereal escapes me but that's true for pretty much all not spoons) You can stab into stuff with it like a fork. You can cut up your huge chunks of stuff so it's smaller. You can even twirl noodles onto one(gotta be careful eating those of a knife though or you can cut yourself.)

I like spoons because I there are times when I don't want to burn my hands... or melt the food. Plus, it can cut certain foods, too. Besides, you can play spoons!
I don't know why forks are so popular; they seem to be the least useful to me.

ever notice how funny things taste when your nose is stuffy? That's because taste is dependent on smell. So actually a bunch of people chose to lose 2 senses not just one. But hey, no one's expected to think that far ahead.

Ever notice how you can still mostly taste things? Having a stuffed nose makes you lose a little of your sense of taste...but try eating with a tongue that you burnt a while ago; you can't taste ANYTHING

I use all these utensils and my hands depending on what kind of food I eat.
